Sorry I didn't write anything about vacation after the first day.  There was much pie eating and shopping and no time for computers.  I thought I'd pop in with a little house updating since I haven't done that in a long time.  Here are some shots of how my dining room has changed over the last 5 months...

This is what it looked like on move-in day.  Very yellow.

I painted three walls chocolate brown with the front wall a light grey/beige color (that runs into the living room also).  The big picture window in the front lets in enough natural light that it doesn't make the room to dark or feel small.  After painting, the dining room became a great staging area for many many tools... and it looked like this.

That's a lot of stuff.  The plan is to put up some shelves, pictures, frames, etc to break up the dark chocolate.  I also want to add some color but not sure what or how yet.  I did template out and put up some floating white shelves.  Very precise measuring going on here...

Take notice of the wonky lopsided light fixture seen above.  That was one of the things I really wanted my dad to help me replace while he was here.  I thought about refinishing it, but just couldn't get it to hang right and get the shades to sit level.  So I ditched that idea in exchange for a nifty modern drum light. 

Ooooo.  So this is what I have now, after putting up the shelves and adding a bit of different decor to the table...

Things I still want to do include:
Add a runner to the table
Paint the table a chairs an antiqued white
Add more things to the wall
Get a hutch/buffet/small server sort of thing
Maybe add a rug...

It still looks kind of naked, but it's getting there!
